Raising Empathy – Sabrina, IELTS Student

This standard five-paragraph essay is written by one of my IELTS students. She has an interesting hook-clincher strategy, starting the essay with the Syrian boy and finishing it with the same image. Also, she proposes three different strategies, which can be used to raise empathy and compassion in people. Finally, she successfully includes specific examples and details to back up her points, which makes the essay very convincing.

Banning Homework – Leila, IELTS Student

This standard inquiry format essay is written by one of my IELTS students. She has written a general statement as the hook, which is a wise technique when writing an examination. The writer does not mention her thesis in the introduction in order to follow the prompt requirement, which asks for the discussion of both views before presenting a personal point of view. She adequately discusses both sides, tilting a bit towards the proponents in order to prepare the readers for her stance on the issue. Finally, she clearly presents her position on this issue in the conclusion. The essay contains 281 words.
